About Project 365

Thanks for stopping by my blog! This is Year 2 of my Project365 blog. What is a Project 365? It's a photo challenge involving people from all over the world posting one photo per day throughout 2011. Some photographers choose themes, however for now my photos will be totally random. I will be shooting with my Canon EOS Digital Rebel XSi-18-55mm, 75-300mm zoom and 100mm 2.8 macro lenses. I edit in iPhoto and Photoshop Elements 9. Not all photos are "perfect"; the purpose is to make photography an everyday event.

I am not a professional. Photography has always been a diversion of mine. I am a primary grade teacher and passionate tech. enthusiast. I consider myself an experienced amateur with LOTS to learn!

You will find links to other photographers in the sidebar- do check them out! I have also joined the Flickr EdTech 365/2011 Group, and you can click this link to view the entire pool. I will be posting my photos to their group pool, as well as here on my photo blog. I welcome your constructive criticism!


1. Photos are to be taken in 2011.
2. Post your own work only.
3. Images may be edited or unedited- your choice.
4. Keep your images, text, and comments appropriate for all ages.

Freshwater Snail

In preparation for Hurricane Earl, my son and I made a quick trip to our camp this morning to pull in our float from the water. Although Earl will likely be a tropical storm by the time he "visits" us, we didn't want our float smashed on the rocks thanks to tropical winds. After we brought it up on the beach, I spied a few freshwater snails laying on the sand. I love the spiraling formation of their shells. It almost reminds me of a french horn!


  1. Great close up! The pebbles make a great background. Yes, it does look like a french horn.

  2. Or the head of a violin... and I agree with Longneys - the pebbles make a perfect background.

  3. Wonderful shot with lots of detail. I like the simplicity of the composition and the subject.
